Happy 5th November, folks.

Of course we all know now that Guy Fawkes wasn’t the greatest of strategists but you’ve got to love Moore’s appropriation of the Fawkes myth. In typically unsettling I’m-going-to-mess-with-your-cosy-liberal-progressive-notions, Moore obliges the reader to consider vigilantism and acts of terror as noble and moral options when confronted with evil.

If you haven’t done so already, I urge you to read V for Vendetta.

The film’s OK too.
